Arsenal boss Wenger blocked Sanogo joining this club...

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger refused to allow Yaya Sanogo to leave yesterday.

Leeds United boss Garry Monk was keen to take the 23-year-old forward to Elland Road on a season-long loan.

Sanogo has spent time on loan at Crystal Palace, Ajax and Charlton in recent seasons.

But according to The Sun, Wenger rejected the latest offer of a temporary switch for the France Under-21 international.

They say the Frenchman insisted on keeping his compatriot in north London as an alternative attacking option to Olivier Giroud and new-boy Lucas Perez.
